DateQuestionAnswer
2010-12-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)most interesting FA SP still out there for someone like Pitt, Nats, etc?
(frank from vegas)
A couple questions out there like this, and I have to apologize and say I don't really have a great answer. My default answer was Jason Frasor, but he accepted arbitration. I like Koji Uehara, and Jenks (if he's non-tendered -- haven't heard much about that lately, so Sox fans in the know feel free to inform me) is probably a good bet. (Ken Funck)
2009-07-24 16:30:00 (link to chat)Any feeling about what the Yanks should do this trade deadline?
(Nick from NYC)
Move Phil Hughes into the starting rotation, try and trade for someone like Jason Frasor or Chad Qualls. (Eric Seidman)
